COLBY DOPPELGÄNGER: A REAL MODEL



Porn is a peculiar category of labor.  Do the workers that define porn's visual field constitute "models" or "performers", or both?   Given my general "Raggedy Andy" appearance, I've always assumed more the "performance/actor" angle.  If you've ever imagined what a bona fide "Colby as Model" might look like (though I can't imagine why), fashion model Billy Kiraly justifies a comparison.  An unmistakeable point of departure ends with the obvious: in porn, Billy Kiraly would be on box covers, a legitimate "Porn Star".  Its like looking into an alternative reality (one where I'm better looking and no doubt make more money).  Creepy.

Thanks to Blog reader Jay for tearing into the space-time continuum and the good people at fantasticsmag (and photographer David Vance) for making dreams come true.

  3. I'd rather look at you power fucking anyone than a pretty piece of meat like Billy. A real man does not need an airbrush nor a great fit in clothes to be enjoyed. He just has to be honest and self aware of the kind of man he is at heart. Park the ego in the drawer with all the fancy pants and get on with life and love and travel and great food with people you like... that's how I see it.

    You are beautiful in a way that fits only you.

    reality where I'd be faced with that choice. lol

  6. Okay, wait. I've been looking through some porn material lately (nothing new), and I think that I've found a (somewhat) better comparison: Logan Stevens, a fellow "performer". Check out this interview on The Sword: http://thesword.com/violinistporn-star-logan-stevens-on-escorting-mishaps.html

    The both of you don't look exactly the same, but there are evident similarities which I found interesting to note. Pale skin, body type, maybe even height. I think it'd be beyond amazing if your paths ever crossed, say, in a scene? Just a thought. Anyway, in my books, you still look way better than Billy and more... Intellectual, perhaps?

  7. Damn he's hot! But I like your down-home wholesome goodness more! Not to mention, I've seen you fuck!

  8. He is hot, no dispute. I prefer your kind of sexy though. You are just sex on two legs. He is a picture in a book.
